Egyptian Handball Federation has launched the official website of the IHF Men’s World Handball Championship 2021. Exactly five months before the start of the first ever tournament on which will participate 32 best world’s handball national teams, organizers established a place where handball fans and media can find all necessary information about the event.
“Handball is one of the world’s most popular sports, and Egypt 2021 will see 32 of the world’s best teams pitted against each other. Never before in the championship’s history have the competition seen so many teams participating. Unitl the past edition, 24 teams had taken part, and the competition was held jointly in two nations, while the next edition that will follow Egypt 2021, will be hosted by three nations. All this brings with it new and exciting challenges.
Led by his Excellency, the President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Egypt has always proved its ability to rise to the occasion and achieve miracles, as you have seen in the summer of 2019, when we hosted football’s Africa Cup of Nations, a feat that international media described as a miracle.
I would like to emphasize the continuous cooperation between the Supreme Organizing Committee headed by Egyptian Prime Minister Dr. Moustafa Madbouly, and all the institutions of the Egyptian state, sports federations, clubs, and the Egyptian personnel. This cooperation has been key to the continuous success Egyptian sport has had when hosting tournaments.
We can never forget the role of the Egyptian public, who are always keen to support their homeland and present themselves in a way that suits the great civilization they represent. As you all know, sports are the best ambassador to express sophistication and competence.
As for infrastructure, our efforts were successful in building three new giant indoor halls in three cities: the New Capital Sports Hall, the Borg El Arab Alexandria Sport Hall, and the 6th of October Giza Sports Hall, as well as further developing the Cairo Stadium Halls Complex. Such achievements will leave a legacy for every Egyptian.
Finally, I would like to welcome every official, team, and fan from all over the world, wishing them the utmost enjoyment of Egypt’s beautiful weather, rich civilization, and all-around hosting experience. I promise them we will exert every effort to host a spectacular tournament suiting Egypt. We promise a historic event.
Welcome to Egypt, and see you in January 2021, is written by by Egyptian sports minister Ashraf Sobhy.
